SUNDAY NOV. 17th 1957


It's HERE!



The camera enthusiast doesn't
seem to mind working his way
around a new area strapped and
loaded with cameras, light meters,
and other attachenrents all bang-
ing together around his chest. But
there are those of us who would
like to take pictures and still not
be bothered with all the parapher-
nalia we've come to think of with
the .picture taking expert.. So
we buy picture ppst cards of
places we've been and let it go at
.that. Well, from this day on we
don't have to give up the fun of
taking oar own pictures, but we
CAN give up the cumbersome
part of dragging an entire supply
of things with us. For tdday we
can buy eThe little Minox L- for
great ejoyment.... which is exact
ly the right slogan for that ca-
inera... it's the smallest thing you
cold imagine for taking pictures
'-i barely 3 along and about I and
1/2. wtde!

The Minox is hardly larger
than a tube of lipstick and just
as easy to carry for it' will slip
into pants pocket or purse with
equal ease. You'll scarcely know
you have a camera with you. And
that's one of the best things about
a Minox you don't have to
fiuke great plans for taking it
along. You drop it into a pocket,
be on your way, and when you see
Something you3 like to capture
on film, take out the camera and
click, you have a picture and with
little fuss and feathers! The

Minox is a precision instrument
designed and built to give you
excellent pictures at all times,
indoors or out.' It's your constant
companion so that you're always
ready to snap a picture and have
a delightfully spontaneous shot as
a souvenir.
You can do just about as much
with this tiny gem as with larger
cameras too for you have a flash
attachment unit for indoor work,
table tripod, exposure meter, and
many other accessories designed to
Cover your every need. Wha's
more, if you find you'd like to
get into developing and enlarging
yourself, there are special Minox
sized developers and enlargers
available too.

And the price is one of it's best
features.., for do you know you
can buy a Minox camera at La
Belle Creole in Haiti cheaper
than you can in Germany? You
certainly can... it's just $89.50
here, while in Germany it's $95.00!
How's that for a really special
price. And too the flash attach-
is just $10.75, and the light meter
$19.00. AU prices that make it
wise to take advantage of them
right away. And keep in mind too,
the Minox camera would make an
ideal Christmas gift... and 6ne
that" you could send air abroad it's
so small and light weight. Mail it
now to arrive in -time for gift giv-
ing and make the hit of the holi-

Automation.- What Does

It Mean in Economics?

To many people the word auto- velop
nation has come to mean the so- due
lution for all present and future i
social-economic problems. Few of
these people actually know what
automation means, and still fewer
understand the problems inherent
in an economy driven by economic
energy, electronical brians aLdr
push 'buttons. Automation means
the ultimate substitution of man
power by machines, reducing the
function of the human being to
that of a director sitting behind
a control panel. Through automa-
tion, the industries of tomorrow
will be nothing more than masses
of machines operated by a few
highly trained technicians.. Natu-
rally, this would be the ultimate
stage of automation, however.
every step toward the ultimate
goal means the progressive subs-
titution of machinery for men.

It is not difficult to visualize
the complicated social and econo-
mic problems brought forth by
w h a t Dr. Walter Frielingsdorf
terns the second' industrial revo-
lution. It might be advisable to -
study the whole picture to arrive
to a few conclusions as to the ap-
plication of automation.


The idea of automation and even
intensive industrialization p r e -
sents serious difficulties to coun-
tries that have not reached the
mdre advanced stages of economic
development. There is a funda-
mental tendency in the so-called
backward nations to accelerate
their process of industrialization
instead of carrying out a well
planned program of industrial and
agricultural diversification. This
tendency is motivated to a great
extent by imitation. that is the
people would like to be able to i-
enjoy the use of all the articles
and services produced in the mo-
re advanced countries. This, is
commonly called ake-eping up with
the Joneses.. What they don't
realize is that their country is not
ready, economically or socially, td
match those more advanced.

One of the. fundamental pru-
blems is that of capital and credit.
If we assume that an average in.
dustry requires an investment of
ten thousand dollars 'per worki'er.
it is not difficult to visualize the
enormous amounts of capital ne-
cessary. For instance, if we .'alcu
late that Cuba has 500,000 unem-
ployed, the investment required in
industries that provide all of them
with jobs would be astronomical.

Most types of industry require
a certain degree of mass produc-
tion so that production costs, wili
not make the sales price prohibi-
tive This means that there must I
Sbe a substantial market. The mar-
ket possibilities 'in most underde- 1

ed countries are very limited pulation and, (2) to the reduced

been estimated that a per-worker

however, has its limitations.


Too much automation could

this reduction of working hour,;
go on until a complete reorganiza-
tion of the system \vould be ne-
cessary? Another question arises
as to how good this system of
little work and much leisure be"
Without seeming philosophical.
we could ask ourselves : Ho w
much mischief would people get
into with so much free time on
their hands ?

It is evident that automation has

JAMAICA became this week the first Colony in the West
Indies to achieve full internal self-government. The Gover-
nor, Sir Hugh Foot, handed over his functions of Chairman
of the Executive Council to the Prime Minister, Mr. Norman
Manley, and a Cabinet of eleven members' took over all the
affairs of 4he country except foreign affairs.
The occasion was marked by a public holiday and special
ceremonies of'the handing over of powers. The achievement
of full internal self-government by Jamaica is of added im-
portance in view of that island's key position in the West
Indian Federation comprising all the British Islands in .tlhe

pattern if they want to see At.
This pattern has grown fixed
and vested interests are invol-
ved. But only the complete frac-
turing of the pattern is going to
improve ithe Citadelle as an at-
traction. If the hotel interests
at the Cap want to keep their
rooms filled, they are going to
have to provide means whereby
visitors can get to the Citadelle
under their oxwn power at any'
time of the day or night, in pri-
vacy, to spend as much or as lit

The dedicated photographers --
and our visitors include mary-
will certainly want to visit the
Citadelle many times, looking
for just the right cloud effect,
the right sunlight, the right ca-
mera angle.

ers in the Cap really intend?
We think not but this is the
actual effect. And under these
conditions, nothing can be done
for the Cip beyond wVuat is
being done; the most popular
way to visit the Citadelle is the
one-day air excursion ani one
cannot fly in the face u. their
This is typical of the old order
of thinking which must be chan-
ged if Haitian tourism is ,rqaUy
to move into high gear. the ker-
nel of truth embedded in this
attitude is that very nearly all
of Haitian Tourism has taken on
the characteristics of the trip
to the Citadelle. The pattern has
become fixed, rigid, unyielding;
and it has developed th. barna-
cles which are fixed' vested inte-
rests. The entire Industry has
been -built around the' two,

have all geared themselves to
this pattern with'fanatical u!'en-
sity. The tourist arrives, and
from that moment hlie moves like
an automaton inside the confin-
of the Tour. If 'he makes any
ing anrd insulating mechanism or
lightest attempt to inove ofl' 'his
beaten track, subtle pressures
are brought to bear, gently guid
ng him back into the groove., .
That this kind of thinking nias
dominated Haitian Tourism is.
unfortunately a plain, bald fact.
The net effect upon the tourist

elected and completely commer
ial side of Haiti which exists

New, right from the road up, the Victor heralds a new
generation of cars... lower, swifter, more efficient. The
low roofline of the Victor is only 58 inches high! Though
built so low to the road, headroom is generous and-ground
clearance ample. This very modern design pays big
dividends in easy driving. Weight is kept low and there
is a new flat-ride suspension system. So the Victor shows
remarkable reluctance to roll on corners. Sure-footed
safety is designed right into the Victor.


Powered by a new, deep-skirt "square,, engine, the Victor
is very much a top gear car-with swift, smooth top gear
acceleration from walking pace into the middle seventies.
This top gear flexibility cuts petrol consumption, too.
Because the Victor's ,square, engine performs so efficient
ly throughout its whole speed range, it puts the Victor far
ahead of its class for all-round fuel economy.

Once again it's Vauxhall for value with an exciting niew
car at an excitingly lo.v price!
There's value in every aspect of the Victor's very advanc-
ed design: in its new, low-swept good looks and panoramic
vision: in its new flat-ride suspension, and its new petrol-
saving 'square' engine.
You must see-and try- this inew Va\iu.hall. It's in our
show-room now awaiting your personal inspection.
Tnere are two versions of the Victor fro?& which to choose... the Victor

Despite recent attempts at eco-
